Gerard Andriesz Bicker And His Lays
Bartholomeus van der Helst was a Dutch painter who was considered to be one of the leading portrait painters of the Dutch Golden Age. His portraits earned him the attention and patronage of Amsterdam’s elite people, as well as the Stadtholder’s circle. Some of his great portraits include Portrait of a Man, Portrait of a Girl, and Portrait of a Woman. Yes, they’re actual titles of his portraits.
One of his most well-known portraits is the Portrait of Gerard Andriesz Bicker. With his arm akimbo, you can already tell that this guy is self-assured. While he is holding a pair of gloves, Varkey had a different thing in mind. He edited the piece and inserted a bag of chips and a drink on the other hand the guy, and labeled the new artwork as ‘snaccident’.
